What are CLAM coins?

CLAM coins are one of the oldest crypto currencies and were forked from bitcoin and created in 2014. What made CLAM coins unique is they were mined using a Proof of Stake method. This makes them different than bitcoin because mining rewards are determined based on the share of coins a miner is “staking” rather than the computing power they contribute to the blockchain as is the way bitcoins and other “proof of work” blockchains work.
